Throughout history, the human body has been a captivating subject in art, from ancient cave paintings to contemporary works. Body Art, Performance Art, and Endurance Art all emphasize the human form as a medium or subject. Artists like Orlan and Marina Abramović have pushed boundaries by engaging in physical alterations or extreme challenges, blurring the lines between art and life.

Depictions of the nude human body have often sparked controversy, yet they are fundamental in artistic training. The exhibition “BODY LANGUAGE” showcases the works of three Maltese artists: Patrick Dalli, Darren Tanti, and Paul Scerri, revolving around the human body theme. These works span years and represent the artists’ distinctive styles.
Patrick Dalli’s large-scale nude paintings focus on capturing the human figure’s essence, devoid of elaborate props. His recent experimentation integrates nudes into stylized landscapes, creating surreal compositions. Darren Tanti’s compositions contrast stark backgrounds with intricate contexts, exploring narrative and philosophical themes. His works navigate between nudity and nakedness, evoking discomfort and reflection. Paul Scerri’s sculptures invite contemplation on life’s absurdity, executed with meticulous detail. His figures, often nude or minimally clothed, carry symbolic props that convey profound narratives.

The objective of the BODY LANGUAGE exhibition is to give homage to the human being from a technical and artistic standpoint while also prompting contemplation and awareness of the issues that permeate our daily lives, fostering a connection and empathy with our fellow human beings.
